How it Works

So, how do you win? The objective of the Social Media Scavenger Hunt is to guess the secret phrase. Each day between February 7 and 12, a new word will be unveiled either on Facebook or Twitter. At the end, you will have all 6 words you need to reveal the secret phrase. Submit the correct secret phrase on your contest entry and you will have a chance at winning the grand prize - it's that simple!

  1. On February 7th keep an eye on the International Student Facebook page to receive the first word and find out on which social media network our next clue will appear the following day;
  2. On February 8th, 9th, 10th, and 11th keep hunting for additional clues and words;
  3. On February 12th the last word will be posted which will be the final piece to the puzzle. If you have been following along you will have a six-word sentence. This sentence is your contest entry!
